Default lowering the rear

just installed some lowering springs that I got of ebay, I like the overall height in the front the tire is about 1 inch from the fender lip, the back is about 3, I would like for the car to be leveled out. So my question is how can I get a couple of inches lower in the rear????

It's been done by a few on here. Just buy the rear lowering springs. Be aware that when you lower the rear the front will raise a little.

It looks like only about a inch higher to me. Lowering the back will tilt the bumper up not raise at the wheel opening. Looks good to me. and if you have any one ride in it it wont look like its dragging is butt.

If you want to balance your car and lowering the lip then it is possible only if you buy rear lowering springs and fit these springs so that your car get equal level and you get the real look of tires and lip you want.

With a 2" lowering spring this is what I got. The front is about half an inch lower than this.
